The moto one was the best. DOS one was good too and the app is actually on the windows app store.

The DOS one is great. It includes tons of Easter eggs, like started up windows 3 and a rock paper scissors game. Just really neat.

Where's Apple? Ahhh. Yeah. They're too early with their Apple Watch. I wonder how excited they were with April Fools and released a big joke before April lol
